Other Addictions



Yes, yes. We all love lists, so here we find ourselves. But there are other benign addictions to be had. Here are a couple of mine:

1) Black Clothes.
Specifically sweaters, shoes and skirts. My wardrobe is essentially three components repeated over and over again. Differences between similar pieces only discernible by the owner.

2) Mommy Blogs.
I am not a mother. My spouse and I do not intend to have children, but I just cannot give up on the Mommy Blogs in my bookmarks. Couldn't tell you why, but I just love them.

3) Carbs.
Duh.

4) Sculptural Campfires.
Prior to burning, it is not uncommon that I should spend too much time creating very specifically designed stacks of paper, kindling and logs for the benefit of having a "One Match Fire." It very rarely happens, but is awesome when it does. I'm a little embarrassed I mentioned this...

5) Vacuuming.
When we bought our first house, I bought an outrageously expensive canister vacuum with attachments, hoses, specialty HEPA filters, the whole shebang. At least once a week for the last five years, I have spent a minimum of 1.5 hours using every attachment to gleefully suck up miscellaneous particles, cat fur, dirt, dust, spiderwebs...Everything from every horizontal and vertical surface in the entire 773 square feet and every single time it is gratifying.

What are your other addictions, List Makers?

Augh! I, too, am addicted to vacuuming, except now that I have a very small place, I attempt to vacuum ONCE A DAY. Holy balls, that's a little excessive.

I also am addicted to reading before bed. I HAVE to do it, no matter how tired, sick or drunk I am.

I am also addicted to the color grey...I love it, it goes with everything, and always manages to look hip and cool, whether it's your clothing, or decor. Fun list! :)

Magazines, magazines, magazines. I just can't give them up; at least I'm a writer, so I can justify it. :)
